What to Expect from a Housing Counselor

If you decide to work with a housing expert at NHS of Greater Cleveland, you can expect that they will work as your advisor and advocate. As your advisor, your counselor needs as much information about your situation as you can provide to know which options you should pursue. As your advocate, working with your mortgage company on your behalf, your counselor needs documentation to champion your cause. Your counselor will need documented information about your loan, your financial situation and your prospective income going forward. The more documentation you can provide, the more thorough your counselor can be in finding the best solution for your situation.

  • Expect to spend time gathering the documents your housing counselor and/or mortgage company will need to evaluate your situation.
  • Expect your mortgage company to work with you if you stay in frequent contact with them.
  • Expect your housing counselor to be an advocate and advisor for you every step of the way.
  • Expect to get real help from real people.
